Are you the one that always makes people laugh with your jokes? Bring your talents to The Bottling Plant Event Center starting Sept. 12 for a chance to win $500.
“The Battle for O-Town Comedy Competition” consists of qualifying shows every Wednesday until Nov. 28. Two winners from each show will have a chance to compete in the finale for the grand prize.
The lounge doors open at 5 p.m. and the comedy show starts at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $5.
Turnout was solid for the first competition held this spring. Many comics put their jokes to the test, but only 20 made it to the finale. Comics from five different states gave their best segments in front of the audience and three judges for the finale of the event, but only one was able to take home the $500 grand prize.
